debian 7 on DL360 g8 with b320i raid controller - can't find disc

hey,

I'm trying to install debian 7 on my HP Proliant DL360e gen8 server with an smart array b320i Raid Controller. when debian-installer comes to the disc detection it says "cannot find any disc". I tried to select the hpsa driver manually - same result, and I tried this suggested solution:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2012/10/msg00088.html

doesn't change anything..

does anybody have any other suggested solution?

For RAID mode you need the hpvsa driver which is only available for Red Hat and SUSE. You can put the controller in plain SATA mode and it should work.  If debian 7 is like Ubuntu 12.04 it may not recognise the disk even in plain SATA mode. I provide more detailed information in the 2nd thred listed below
